The first Star Gazer trilogy is a compelling, contemporary adventure story that charts the life of Jack Barleycorn and begins in the real world of circa 2010. On a journey, disaster strikes and Jack is left floating at the mercy of savage seas. Hallucinating, but guided by a voice, he shambles ashore more dead than alive, upon an uncharted South Pacific island.
It is inhabited by people, but not by homo sapiens.
The islanders are a Stone Age culture, yet use extremely advanced technology to shield the island from discovery, a legacy left behind by an alien race called The Ancestors. Later, Jack discovers other branches of the human line also survive, although we know of these through myth and legend as Elves, Dwarves, and Ogres.
A series of discoveries irrevocably alter Jack’s life, as the trilogy leads us to discover the real reason why we exist. Catastrophe Theory, Darwinism, and religious dogma are dismissed, and an alternative explanation to our human evolution is offered.
As the extraordinary tale unwinds, we are led to examine our most fundamental assumptions about humanity: who we are, where we came from, and perhaps more importantly, where we are headed
